Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

An article in Inside Higher Ed reports on a new study that analyzes the role that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Lumina Foundation have played in higher education reform over the past five years. As the article notes, the Foundations’ advocacy has drawn the "attention of a disparate group of actors and focused them in collaborative work toward some important goals; their overarching objective of increasing postsecondary attainment (especially for low-income Americans) is arguably the closest thing to a national higher education strategy the country has had since the G.I. Bill and the post-Sputnik era."
